Funny show. Good commentary all in all.
Still bizarre to see how far the victim mentality goes in the black community. A multimillionaire goes on stage and in each special whines about slavery and how evil whites treat him as they cheer him on. He kept saying: “It’s a tough time for the blacks.” He was referring to the Black Lives Matter BS the media goes nuts with. But I don’t need to get into the statistics of why that’s all BS because you probably already know. Instead let’s take a foreigners’ perspective. Both Japanese people and African Africans are annoyed at the African American victim mindset:
So, one of the tell tale signs in this special that shows Dave’s mentality is how he said he was expecting a racist banana for 20 years during his career. So when it finally happened, of course he thought it was racist. But when you google the guy who did it, it’s clearly a hipster f*gg*t and the whole thing was truly coincidental.
I experienced this myself with one of the black girls I dated back in the States. She was over analyzing and reading between the lines inventing racist experiences that definitely didn’t happen. I thought she was crazy and too sensitive but gave her benefit of the doubt for a few of the times. Fast forward a few years when I was living in Japan as an expat and I had the same dynamic with my Japanese gf but in reverse. I kept explaining how I was positive so and so responded to me in such and such way because I was a Gaijin!
I think it’s a little of column A and a little of column B. If Dave’s other anecdote about being hit with a snowball and called the “N word” was true, then I get why he’s uptight. And it can create a tense mindset and vicious cycle. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything on the snowball story because I guess he dropped the charges. Since he’s a comedian it’s hard to know what aspects are hyperbole, absurdism, or reality. But now that we have body cams and CCTV footage, and even with this banana peel story being google-able, I highly doubt Dave’s side of the story. Most likely, he is a race OBSESSED man and 90% of his bad experiences are as bullsh*t as the NAACP president’s racial profiling experience:
Nevertheless, I still find Dave hilarious and this stand up was clever and insightful on variety of subjects. (Even the commentary on race relations despite the victim spin.) So support the man by renting it or buying the DVD…. that is, if you aren’t boycotting NetFlix.
